Mixed up III

575.00

Suppose you have trouble throwing things away. Who knows, every leftover can ever be used for something else. However, practice has also shown that many of those leftovers turn out to be just too small, thick, wrong in color, atmosphere or width and thus remain where they lie and slowly disappear from view, and end up in obscurity. A rigorous clean-up action usually seals the fate of these things. From a chair that I once literally slumped through, I have had some legs for years. That is how these chairs were created. As a kind of mental exercise, browsing through my chair books, I collected some parts here and there and assembled them into this two-seater.

And due to all the picture frames I have made over the years I had quite a lot small pieces of frames left… Then one and one is three isn’t it?

Happy feet

285.00

A classic office chair from the TU Delft collection dating from the beginning of the last century. The designer is unknown.

Mixed up II

375.00

Who knows, that bit, that leftover, may come in handy again. A good feature not to throw something away too quickly. I have often managed to solve something because I had ‘kept something somewhere’. The downside is that it can sometimes get out of hand and the amount of leftovers is more or less reluctant. For example, I saved some undamaged parts of a chair that I literally slumped through. Composing a new frame from leftover frame pieces requires a drawing in which the depicted chair is also composed of parts of (eight) other chairs.

The downside is that it can sometimes get out of hand and the amount of leftovers is more or less reluctant. For example, I saved some undamaged parts of a chair that I literally slumped through. Composing a new frame, a leftovers-frame, from preserved frame pieces requires a drawing in which the depicted chair is also composed of parts of (four) other chairs.

Relations

525.00

Are we looking at a self-portrait here? Or is it a family member? From a previous generation possible? After all generation is also a form of relationship. Or is the relationship simply the front and back of this Pastoe chair designed by Cees Braakman?

Mixed zone

550.00

A chair in two frames or ….

Lie back

225.00

I already made Pinocchio pulling a long nose. Looking at the opponent, the surprise is no less. Who is lying?

Braakman’s gaze

275.00

One can see this as a kind of cartoon for on the wall: The making of the SB01 by Cees Braakman in the Pastoe factory in the 1960s. The four-panel work also unites earlier ideas such as one of the Portraits (sold), Pinocchio and Lie back and in that sense also tells another story.

Looking back

285.00

The series of luxury cassettes for the book All in the family has found its youngest offshoot. Do not misunderstand the black area in your back, you will just give yourself a look.

Unlock II

825.00

A variation on Unlock that comes with the key, which should make the escape possible.

Paradigma-shift

625.00

Starting point was the backrest, which actually forms a kind of frame for this type of chair. Building on that thought, this is the result. A more or less complete reversal. A frame that frames and protects a drawing and above it an empty sheet of paper which is just as well protected by a drawn frame. Who protects this list here?

Swing II

275.00

Drawing and frame together create a new connection here. The swing is attached to the top of the recessed frame and comes out of the paper.

Babel’s end II

A carefully arranged chaos of unique chairs tumbles down thus forming a pattern. The pattern we know; haughtiness that invariably comes before the trap. It is an even more spatial version of Babels end with in this case three layers. The confusion and dynamics are reinforced by the shadows that change depending on the light source(s).
Does it look like this when for example the Tower of Babel III collapses?

 

Familyportrait II

300.00

A portrait of my own family by using four chairs by Cees Braakman (for Pastoe). Spatially placed in a sunken frame, which makes it a viewing box.

Snorrenstoel

Commission

(Not for sale)

A common school chair with a recess in the back as a handle. And a colleague with a striking mustache who has delivered art projects for almost thirty years at hundreds of schools throughout Noord-Brabant and a little bit beyond. By combining both I created the Mustache Chair with the mustache as a handle.

Backman

225.00

The back of a fairly common school chair is attached with two conspicuous screws (eyes!). Then the mouth can also fall open: pacman ehh Backman! This drawing is indebted to an earlier 2018 entitled (S) Eat.
